a lot of weight in washington. there appears to be no doubt that he believed in crusader. he was hired by united defense to plead its case to congress and the public. i hope people listening to this argument say, you know, look, mccaffrey's been around in uniform for 32 years. he got wounded three times. his son and daughter are both in uniform. he sounds like a thoughtful guy, and he's telling us this program's vital. poussaint: united defense's public efforts were orchestrated by power washington pr firm powell tate. they spearheaded the campaign of the crusader industrial alliance, who stood to lose billions if crusader was cancelled. the alliance paid for an ad campaign and a slick web site which offered talking points, even videos, touting crusader's virtues. it's a campaign, it's just like a political campaign, it's run the same way and some of the same tactics apply and it's very high-energy. this is a very sophisticated, broad-based, well-funded attempt to essentially overturn the secretary of defense's decision to kill the crusader program. poussaint: meanwhile, united defense

told me, i think, $40,000, $45,000 for that building. so i called up melzack in washington. i said, "i need $40,000. "do you really want that painting? i'll get it from max." melzack said, "well, milton, i don't know whether i can afford to buy a painting now." so i said, "okay," and i went to paint, and while i was painting, the telephone rang. and i said, "that's melzack, i know it is." so i got on the phone. he says, "i'll give you $30,000." so i says, "okay," and i bought that building. the whole thing opens up into a kind of growing field. now, feelings that are too strong are hopeless. you go mad. you say, "enough, goodbye!" ah! so there is a kind of artistic, maybe, feeling which is not too strong, not too weak, and it just seems as if you can put yourself up against it. you can almost push against that so that it's there for you. and if you sense that, then you don't have to see your painting anymore. if you put paint there, you're putting it into that feeling. ah! nobody i know has ever painted like that, but that's how i painted for the last 40, 50 years. ahhh! enough.

was an artist in search of a cause. ( native chanting ) 1824: an indian delegation on its way to washington visited philadelphia. dazzled by their colors, george catlin wrote, "after ty took the leave, i was left to reflect. the history and customs of such a people, preserved by pictorial illustration, are themes worthy of the lifetime of one man. and nothing, short of the loss of my life, shall prevent me from visiting their country, and becoming their historian." ( crows cawing ) 1830: catlin became the first american artist to document indian life. ( native chanting ) "clear the way; in a sacred manner i come. the earth is mine." ( birds chirping ) some years later, the artist wrote, "i love a people who have always made me welcome to the best they had; who are honest without laws, who have no jails, no poorhouse. and , how i love a people who don't live for the love of money." they trusted catlin. he was privileged to paint rituals which no white man had ever seen before: the steam baths of the mandan; sacred dancing; ( men chanting ) ( horse whinnying ) the sacrifice; tragedy.

, before passage by ship to her home in america. royo follows "femme" to washington, d.c., to supervise the installation on the south wall of the east building's central court. there are now many new problems to overcome. the tolerances are extremely close, demanding precise measurement, careful planning and a team effort. the huge roll barely fits into this confined space. the workers must unroll it evenly and accurately. bolts have been embedded deep into the structural wall, behind the marble facing, to support this massive piece when it slides into place. ( muffled comments ) carefully, royo grooms "femme," as the crew gradually hoistser upwd over the last few yards of a long journey. ( music ) this is the realization of many dreams, uly a work of collaboration; the fulfillment of a vision shared by the architect and the national gallery, supported by generous patrs, brought to fruition by joan miro and josep royo. on this day, those drms and efforts are reaching a successf conusion. "femme" is at home. brown: "it's everything we hoped." today, suspended 42 feet above the museum flo

, washington saturday after the group was initially barred it from purchase of bidding by the city. the peace group filed a discrimination lawsuit and was allowed to march after a judge issued a temporary restraining order. the issue of tax cuts for the wealthiest americans has taken center stage in the political battle over a looming fiscal cliff of tax increases and spending hikes that could tip the country into economic recession at the start of next year. "the new york times" reports that president obama is hoping to recruit corporate executives to accept higher taxes and assurances of democratic votes to reduce so-called entitlements. on saturday, president obama defended tax hikes for the wealthy. >> i am open to new ideas but i refuse to accept any approach that is not balanced. i cannot ask students or seniors or middle-class families to pay down the entire deficit while people making over $250,000 a year are not as to pay a dime more in taxes. >> house speaker john boehner argued against any tax rises -- tax hikes. >> instead of raising taxes on americans, let's begin to solve the pr

foreigners ended up in shantytowns, like this one near abidjan, called washington. ( man speaking french ) translator: first of all, it was foreigners, the burkinabes and the malians who were even more numerous. then, in the '80s, with the crisis, e population of this area swelled with people om all over e ivory cot itself. at the moment, e are peopleoming om all over from all over the ivory coast. you can find baules, agnis, dyulas and maukas from the north. narrator: but the northern migrants bring more than just their ethnic diversity into this diminished economy. bassett: they've changed the religious composition of the country. eighty percent, it's estimated, of immigrants are... are muslim. so currently, the population of côte d'ivoire is about 37%, 38% muslim, and a good percentage of that is foreign-born. so we're at a conjuncture where tensions over land that are also becomiixed with politics over who's ivorian, who's not ivorian, are creating the conditions for further political instability. so the new leader, or leaders, of côte d'ivoire have a lot on their platter. narrator

at harold washington college in lute. >> have you ever had any difficulties in say as you are moving out for the ministry anythi that has ever happened that you could share with us? >> crossings is my third call. my first call was in ethnic congregation on the north side of chicago, a swedish congregation. they didn't quite know what do you with a associate pastor who was a black woman. and one of the men came to me at the begin on my ministry there and said; frankly i don't think you can be my pastor primarily because i've never had a pastor who wasn't white male and of a scandinavian descent. and at first, i was kind of surprised but my response to him became very positive and affirmed the fact that he could even say that. because that to me is something i can deal with. it's when people don't say things that you don't know really how to handle it. but anyway he was that honest and integrous about his approach. by the time i left there which was almost two years later he and i were the best of friends because i wasn't out to change him. i was there to be a pastor. and i guess he found

the same issues. poussaint: montgomery county, maryland, which borders washington, d.c., on its northwest corner, consists of bedroom communities and light industry near that border and of mandated open space up-county. today, the housing industry is booming. traffic clogs the roads. schools are overcrowded. the quality of life is suffering. county executive doug duncan has put together a team of like-minded county council candidates who want to "end gridlock" by encouraging growth and relieving congestion with more roads and additional transit initiatives. the plan of this well-funded "go montgomery" team runs counter to the plan of the modestly funded neighbors group. i am dolores milmoe and i am the maryland advocate for conservation with the audubon naturalist society. poussaint: the neighbors group hits the ground running, holding issues briefings for candidates and their staffs to get out their message. they hope to redirect the election debate away from the "go montgomery" team plan. debraga: do you think that the current rate of growth in this county and the projected rate of grow
